Alison has always had an interest in end of life care since working as an elective in India, which then became a special interest during her years as a GP.  Alison moved from General Practice to specialise in palliative medicine, and ultimately she was based in Lichfield working with the local district general hospitals in the area. Alison’s final position before taking retirement was as a lead physician, and acting Medical Director at St Giles’ as well as visiting physician to Queens’ Hospital Burton on Trent.
